Tequila Works Gives an Overview of Rime’s PS4 Pro Enhancements, Says It Wants to Balance It Out

Rime developer Tequila Works has said that it’s targeting a frame-rate and resolution of 30fps/1080p on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One and although the game will offer a higher frame-rate on the PS4 Pro, the studio wanted to achieve a balance between “having more frame rate than in a normal PS4 but adding some visual improvements that helped Rime to look even better.” Speaking to Wccftech, Lead Progammer Carlos Vázquez said that the increase in frame-rate for PS4 Pro will vary between 5-10fps “depending on the game’s area.” Additionally, he gave a quick rundown of improvements as follows: –          Much better quality of the shadows.–          Temporal antialiasing has better quality, obtaining more definition and quality in the AA filter.–          The LODs’ distance has been tweaked to increase the visual quality of fauna and flora during the time they are rendered.–          More definition in the texture filter.–          The VFX, shaders, materials and translucency has better quality too so we can have, for example, more realistic metals, better screen space reflections and better detail level in general. As for HDR, Vázquez says that the support Rime offers is the default one that comes with Unreal Engine, and the developer didn’t feel READ FULL STORY…

Stunning Open World Game “Rime” Heading to Xbox One, PS4 and Switch Says Rating Board

Rumor Has It That the Turbulent Rime Is Venturing Into the Realm of Multi-Platform Availability Relatively Soon For those of you with an excellent memory, you probably recall all the details for Gamescom 2013 as if it were yesterday. So you remember Rime then, an open world adventure game that was slated to be released by developers Tequila Works. Sony announced the game as a PS4 exclusive and it was said it would feature beautiful colorful aesthetics. For those who need a refresher check out the following trailer. The game is visually beautiful and very reminiscent of recent titles like The Last Guardian or Ni No Kuni. Unfortunately, it has not been smooth sailing for the whimsical game from the beginning. It was leaked in 2014 that the game was originally pitched to Microsoft as Echoes of the Sieren, but they passed. But then on March 16, 2016, it was announced the game will no longer be a PlayStation Exclusive by Sony either. Tequila Works issued a statement at the time saying they had “chosen to reacquire the rights to its open world adventure game, RiME,” and “is working hard to realize its aspirations for it”.

PSX 2016 – Dreadnought Preview – Full Power to Weapons (PS4)

A surprise announcement for some during Sony’s PlayStation Experience 2016 was that of Dreadnought coming to the PlayStation 4. For those who may not know, Dreadnought is a tactical action game, where you fight with massive spaceships in battles of epic proportions. We managed to play the game while at PSX, and have a preview ready for you below. Not Your Typical Dogfight When most people think of spaceship combat, they probably envision what we’ve all come to know from movies like Star Wars: intense dogfighting requiring hair-trigger reflexes between combat ships screaming along at hundreds or thousands of miles per hour. But much like real-life war, there are much bigger fish to fry, and larger-scale fights to be had, with large battleships. This is where Dreadnought makes its niche. In this game, you play as the commander of a large warship, where battles are won and lost not just by applying overwhelming force, but also by cunning tactics. Strategic positioning of your ship can become a significant advantage, as can the loadout of your team. There were several different classes of ships to choose from, varying in size, shape, and use. The Dreadnought class included powerful weapons and defenses,…
